Chicken Cutlets with Citrus Cherry Sauce Recipe

You'll love the sweet-tart tanginess of this restaurant-quality chicken dish. Served with a salad, this is a meal to remember. It's also good with pork cutlets and dried cranberries instead of chicken and cherries. —Charlene Chambers, Ormond Beach, Florida

"This recipe is both elegant and delicious. Because of the tartness of the sauce, I paired it with a creamy spinach and artichoke casserole. It was a perfect combination!"

"Very good! I flattened whole chicken breasts instead of using cutlets and substituted dried cranberries for the cherries. A great recipie for using fruit from my citrus trees! My boyfriend loved it served with roasted broccoli. Will definitely make again."
